Hundreds of families of Islamic State militants and some injured fighters are expected to leave rebel-held areas in southern Damascus under a UN-brokered deal, a monitor said on Thursday.

Rami Abdulraham , head of the UK-based Observatory for Human Rights, said safe passage would be given from the Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk on the outskirts of Damascus and neighboring Hajar al Aswad.

The families and some fighters will be taken to the ultra-hardline militant group’s stronghold of Raqqa in northern Syria and other IS-controlled areas over several months, ultimately ending the group’s presence in areas near the Syrian capital. Reuter

  1. This is ridiculous. Did ISIS and their ilk ever give safe passage to the local inhabitants of the regions they invaded? No they didn’t. They should be given the choice to pay for this safe passage or else suffer the consequences, just as they as they gave a “choice” to Yazidis, Christians, etc to either pay their form of the jizya or die.

    ISIS and their ilk are really the worst examples of Muslims today.
